GNAX Health Introduces Cloud-Based IT Infrastructure Services

November 18, 2011 — Global Net Access (GNAX) Health, a healthcare technology infrastructure and application delivery service provider, announced the general availability of its cloud-based archive, storage and back-up solution for healthcare.

The Distributed Object-based Elastic Storage (DOES) Archive is a hosted, data archive service that includes automated replication across two of GNAX's data centers. The system sports one low monthly storage cost per gigabyte. 

It consists of three core capabilities, is fully HIPAA-compliant and shifts data storage from capital-intensive systems managed locally to an affordable, pay-as-you-grow service.

  • Archive
  • Vendor neutral archive for medical images
  • Disaster recovery

In 2010, Data Center Knowledge reported that 63 percent of readers were in the midst of data center and storage expansion. Furthermore, 50 percent of healthcare IT departments have open positions. In addition, 50 percent of CIOs state their staff members are stressed (according to Kirby Partners, a healthcare IT recruiting firm).

GNAX’s system solves healthcare's storage, budget and staffing issues by off-loading on-site hardware and system management costs. The company can migrate data from proprietary systems, including those that are nearing end-of-service life, relieving hospitals of high professional services costs.

According to customers, the ability to offload on-site storage systems to GNAX DOES is particularly valuable. It lowers costs and keeps internal staff focused on meeting IT-driven requirements for meaningful use and other core organizational goals.

The system eliminates the need for back-up tapes; this gives hospitals flexibility to add new systems and store more data for compliance, including images produced by picture archiving and communications systems (PACS). Changes in files and data are managed real-time with simple file transfer protocols and real-time monitoring capabilities.

Finally, the system includes diverse geographic redundancy by replicating data automatically between its Atlanta and Dallas data centers. This provides complete security and high availability for disaster recovery, application back-ups and hot site needs.

GNAX will showcase the GNAX DOES Archive solution at RSNA 2011. Visit GNAX Health at booth 7036.
